Prof. Lutgarde Buydens is an international expert on chemometry. She develops pattern recognition methods for the selection of crucial information from large quantities of measurement data that are relatively easy to acquire but difficult to interpret objectively.
The analysis of spectral images such as satellite and medical images (MRI and MRSI) is a major research topic. In co-operation with the radiology department of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre, Prof. Buydens used pattern recognition methods to improve diagnoses of the nature and size of brain tumours based on various spectral imaging techniques.
Prof. Buydens is editor of Analytica Chimica Acta (journal).
